    I don't know what you want to say, I'm afraid. Could you try it in other words?

    * Not a teacher

    Perhaps:

    We are the working/labouring class.

    Is this what you mean?

    "Working class" is used sometimes in AmE, but usually as an adjective, not a noun. "Blue collar" is probably more common.

    It's widely used in Indian English. In BrE it's "We are working class".
